Its most distinctive feature is its integrative approach in which police, community organization, and physical design changes were used to increase the willingness and ability of residents to control their neighborhood and reduce criminal opportunities. Implementation efforts are detailed in terms of: (1) closing or narrowing...

Attitudes toward crime were investigated among Pittsburgh residents. Respondents were asked their opinions regarding crime trends, fear of crime, residential problems and life styles, and local police performance. Results indicated that Pittsburgh residents believed that others ran a greater risk than they did and that other neighborhoods were less safe than their own. They were far less likely to think that neighborhood crime had risen than they were to believe that crime had increased...

For years, law enforcement practitioners and policymakers have sought innovative ways to reduce crime. But experience has shown that reducing crime without retaining the community’s trust—such as through heavy-handed policing—can be venomous for society. In New York City, the precision policing model combines predictive policing analysis with increased neighborhood coordination to predict crime and then uses interventions from neighborhood coordination officers to prevent crimes...

Crime prevention works. This simple fact is often forgotten in the ongoing debate over crime and its causes. Prevention works when individuals take common-sense actions to protect themselves, their families and property. The theme from Crime Prevention Month 1995 goes back to these basics: good home security, self-protection skills for kids and adults, drug prevention, and Neighborhood Watch. This guide offers event and program ideas, along with resources that focus primarily on the following...
